Smartfares! They will offer a deeply discounted airfare and send you a confirmation number to your email. The next day you will receive an email to call them immediately because they were unable to confirm your flight. When you call them back, they will try to sell you another flight at a much higher price. SCAM SCAM AVOID!

I seems like a scam as I went through hell to be able to rebook a fly due to the airline fault.

Charge from the credit card. Not give the ticket. When ask, the ticket price goes up 60$. If cancel, I have to pay 50$. I canceled it but on the reservation status they changed to ticketed. I think I will not get all my money back.

Legit with scam tactics. 1- Bait and switch: false initial fare then they hike it either before or after you pay.
2- False claim that you get free cancellation within 24 hours. Agents insist on charging $350/passenger because "that's what the airlines charge, not us"
3- Rude customer service out of India even before any of these issues came up.
